I took photos of my woolly souvenirs today but they came out very grainy due to lack of suitable daylight! It's no wonder some people get a little blue in the winters here.
I'm finally on top of the post holiday laundry mountain. We've been having fun with our own take on Spanish food. I've been chalking up a Casa Juanita menu every day. Well ok, just the one day, the kitchen is mainly Casa M, he does a wonderful patatas bravas.
It's been full speed ahead with the Cedar River Blanket since we got back. Having chosen and purchased E's 18th birthday gifts (jewellery) in Barcelona and allowed her to have them early I'd like at least the blanket for something to unwrap on the day. (I've got a few small things squirelled away too).
I'm really not enjoying the blanket but I am finding the birthday is suitable motivation thank goodness. I don't like the way that the ends clutter up the edges where you need to do a dc border and then join with dc on the back. It's just very annoying! I've tried both running the main colour up the side and cutting off at each colour change. They both produce the same result but running the main colour up the side is slightly less time consuming. I've done eight squares and I'm joining each one to the growing blanket once I've made them with the idea that seeing it grow will provide even more motivation!
